  • The museum had an extensive collection of Johnny Cash memorabilia and film clips. It's worth an hour or so to see it.

  • I love Johnny Cash. The museum is not large. Lots of reading and listening to music. Fairly interactive. Good displays and thorough history capturing his personality. The food was good and classic country. The restaurant is small so it might be good for larger groups to get go during midday. Best for smaller groups but you can order meals at the bar.
  • Amazing exhibit showing all aspects of his life. A lot of details were put into this beautifully planned out display. We felt we became more intimately connected with Johnny Cash and his life. My dad was a big fan and I wish he was still around to have enjoyed this museum with us, while we vacationed in Tennessee. I highly recommend any persons familiar with Johnny Cash make the time to stop here. They will not be disappointed.
